Ikemen Archive

  • <p><a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/?attachment_id=83701" rel="attachment wp-att-83701"></a></p> <p>Earlier today we gave some <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/toy-fair-2018-kotobukiyas-ikemen-line" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">updates on Kotobukiya’s Ikemen line</a> and later, at Toy Fair, we got to take a close look at the Red Robin sculpt. I’m not gonna lie, every time I see this figure it looks like if a KPop star moonlighted as Red Hood, which, honestly is exactly what we all wanted out of this line and I really dig it. Red Hood’s abs are on full display here, as is the signature butt, which many fans were also looking for from a male version of a bishoujo line. I’m also really liking that Red Robin has three different head options, which elevates this figure that’s just “standing there” to new levels. Now to see what happens with the rest of the Robins!</p>

    Toy Fair 2018: Kotobukiya’s Ikemen Line

    So far Kotobukiya’s Ikemen line has given us a butt-tastic Nightwing and a less provocative but equally cool Red Hood. We knew they’d be doing all of the bat-boys, so it’s no surprise that we got a look at the art for two more of them at Toy Fair: Damian Wayne and Red Robin!

    I really appreciate that they went with a cute, sassy pose for Damian since… you know, he’s underage and all. He looks ready to angst it up!

    Kotobukiya’s Ikemen Red Hood Is Up For Order

    It has been quite some time since Kotobukiya originally announced the Ikemen line, an all-male companion to the lovely Bishoujos. But my interest has only increased with the long wait, especially once we got to see the beautiful & bootylicious Nightwing. Finally, fanservice for all! We knew Red Hood was next and I’ve been eagerly anticipating him because who doesn’t want a hot psychopath in their collection?

    Well, the time has finally arrived! Red Hood is here and ready to sass up your collection! He comes with not one but three faces: regular, the hood (of course), and a special first-release masked head. So fancy! He retails for ¥8,800 and will hit shelves in June in Japan, though like most of Kotobukiya’s figures he is getting an official US release. Are you guys excited for the Ikemen line?

    NYCC 2017: Kotobukiya’s DC Comics Figures

    Finally, it has happened. We’ve know about Kotobukiya’s Ikemen line for a while, and in fact Nightwing has been finished for quite some time, but I have been counting down the hours until I got to see him in person. And it was glorious. Just look at that butt! They didn’t even neglect the bulge ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I am all about equal opportunity sexy figures.

    Oh, they had more than Nightwing in their DC section, though! A lot, actually. The star for me was the huge ArtFX Wonder Woman who is just… so beautiful. Dead-on likeness for Gal.

    SDCC 2017: Ikemen Nightwing & Red Hood

    It has been almost exactly a year since Kotobukiya announced the Ikemen line, which is a male companion to the Bishoujos. Cute boys with cute butts doing cute things, finally! It seems that there has been a lot of work put into this line, because progress has been slow and they’re really trying to make it perfect. Both for us, of course, and for the ever-fickle DC.

    Now, finally, we are getting a peek at the fully sculpted & painted Nightwing! Look at that booty, it’s a thing of beauty. And his face is so sassy! We also got the full art for the next in the line, Red Hood. He looks so grumpy and adorable. Feeling a little tsundere, Jason?

    Kotobukiya Panel NYCC 2016: DC

    We got some very exciting DC-related announcements at Kotobukiya’s panel (Bishoujo Katana and the TV show teasers). But given how massive their DC lines are, it’s no surprise that there was a ton more! Like the affordable retro Super Powers figures, their villains ArtFX+ line (including the brand-new Harley Quinn–and a new sculpt for Black Manta), and their ArtFX statues.

    We also got a little more info about the Ikemen line. It was a pretty big deal when announced, and they discussed how happy fan response has been along with the potential of the line. If the Bat-Boys sell well enough, they will definitely be continuing with other characters!

    SDCC 2016: Kotobukiya’s Ikemen Line

    For years fans have been practically begging for a male Bishoujo line. A Bishonen line, if you will. Featuring manly men and their butts. Well… I honestly can’t believe I’m finally saying this, but it’s happening!!! They just announced Ikemen, a line full of cute as hell boys. I mean, look at that Nightwing art. Look at that Nightwing butt. It’s a thing of beauty. The line will also be 1/7 scale, so you can display them with your Bishoujo figures!

    So far, it seems like we’re gonna get most of the Bat Boys. We can only hope they are all as perfect and sassy as Dick.
